As of December 31, 2010, S&T had approximately $4.1 billion in total assets, $578.7 million in total shareholders equity and $3.3 billion in total deposits. S&T Bank deposits are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) to the maximum extent provided by law.

The deposits of S&T Bank are insured up to applicable limits per insured depositor by the FDIC. In October 2008, the FDIC increased FDIC deposit insurance coverage per separately insured depositor for all account types to $250,000. While initially stipulated to be in effect through December 31, 2010, this increase was made permanent in July 2010 by the enactment of the Dodd-Frank Act. The Dodd-Frank Act also maintains federal deposit insurance coverage for noninterest-bearing transaction accounts at an unlimited amount from December 31, 2010 until December 31, 2012. Interest on Lawyer Trust Accounts will be considered noninterest-bearing transaction accounts for purposes of temporary unlimited deposit insurance coverage. However, interest-bearing transaction accounts paying 25 basis points or less are no longer insured beyond the $250,000 limit as of December 31, 2010. The Dodd Frank Acts federal deposit insurance coverage for noninterest-bearing transaction deposit accounts replaces the transaction account guarantee program of the Temporary Liquidity Guarantee Program. S&T was a participant in the transaction account guarantee program during its existence.

Due to recent bank failures and contingent loss reserves established by the FDIC against potential future bank failures, the reserve ratio is currently significantly below its target balance. Thus, in February 2009, the FDIC adopted a Final Rule on Assessments under which the quarterly initial base assessment rates increased substantially beginning in the second quarter of 2009. The FDIC then adopted a Final Rule on Special Assessment in May 2009, which imposed a five basis point special assessment on each institutions assets minus Tier 1 capital as reported on the report of condition as of June 30, 2009, but capped the special assessment at 10 basis points times the institutions assessment base for the second quarter 2009 risk-based assessment. On November 12, 2009, the FDIC Board of Directors adopted a final rule that required insured depository institutions to prepay, on December 30, 2009, their estimated quarterly risk-based assessments for the fourth quarter of 2009 and for all of 2010, 2011, and 2012, along with their quarterly risk-based assessment for the third quarter of 2009. The continued decline in the DIF balance may convince the FDIC to impose additional special emergency assessments in the future, which could have an impact on S&T Banks earnings and capital levels. The prepayment for S&Ts quarterly assessments amounted to $21.1 million and will be recognized as expense over a three year period. As of December 31, 2010, $14.9 million remains prepaid for quarterly FDIC assessments.

provides that the FDIC will forego the uniform three basis point increase in initial assessment rates that was previously scheduled to take effect on January 1, 2011 and will maintain the current assessment rate schedule for all insured depository institutions until the reserve ratio reaches 1.15 percent. The FDIC intends to pursue further rulemaking in 2011, regarding the requirement under the Reform Act that the FDIC offset the effect on institutions with less than $10.0 billion in assets (such as S&T Bank) of the requirement that the reserve ratio reach 1.35 percent by September 30, 2020, rather than 1.15 percent by the end of 2016 (as required under the prior restoration plan), so that more of the cost of raising the reserve ratio to 1.35 percent will be borne by institutions with more than $10.0 billion in assets. Implementation of the Restoration Plan is not expected to have a material effect upon S&Ts consolidated operating results. In addition to DIF assessments, the FDIC assesses all insured deposits a special assessment to fund the repayment of debt obligations of the Financing Corporation (FICO). FICO is a government-sponsored entity that was formed to borrow the money necessary to carry out the closing and ultimate disposition of failed thrift institutions by the Resolution Trust Corporation in the 1990s. As of January 1, 2011, the annualized rate established by the FDIC for the FICO assessment was 1.02 basis points per $100 of insured deposits.

On January 16, 2009, S&T completed a $108.7 million capital raise as a participant in the U.S. Treasury Capital Purchase Program (the CPP). In conjunction with S&Ts participation in the CPP, S&T issued to the U.S. Treasury 108,676 shares of S&Ts Series A Preferred Stock. The Series A Preferred Stock pays cumulative dividends at a rate of five percent per year for the first five years and thereafter at a rate of nine percent per year. As part of its purchase of the Series A Preferred Stock, the U.S. Treasury received a Warrant to purchase 517,012 shares of S&Ts common stock at an initial per share exercise price of $31.53. The Warrant provides for the adjustment of the exercise price and the number of shares of S&Ts common stock issuable upon exercise pursuant to customary anti-dilution provisions, such as upon stock splits or distributions of securities or other assets to holders of S&Ts common stock and upon certain issuances of S&Ts common stock at or below a specified price relative to the initial exercise price. S&T engaged an outside expert to calculate the estimated fair value of the common stock warrant issued by S&T on January 16, 2009. A binomial pricing model was used resulting in an estimated fair value of $4.0 million. The Warrant expires 10 years from the issuance date. In addition, the U.S. Treasury has agreed not to exercise voting power with respect to any shares of common stock issued upon exercise of the Warrant.
